Indentation deformation/fracture of normal and anomalous glasses
Abstract Vickers deformation/fracture indentations have been investigated in six silicate glasses. The characteristic damage patterns fall into two distinct groups, according to whether the glassExpand

Regulation of reactionary dentin formation by odontoblasts in response to polymicrobial invasion of dentin matrix.
Odontoblast synthesis of dentin proceeds through discrete but overlapping phases characterized by formation of a patterned organic matrix followed by remodelling and active mineralization. MicrobialExpand

Hierarchical flexural strength of enamel: transition from brittle to damage-tolerant behaviour
Hard, biological materials are generally hierarchically structured from the nano- to the macro-scale in a somewhat self-similar manner consisting of mineral units surrounded by a soft protein shell.Expand

Nickel sulphide inclusions in glass: an example of microcracking induced by a volumetric expanding phase change
Microcracking about inclusions of nickel sulphide in soda-lime glass has been studied. These cracks are nucleated by the volumetric expansion that accompanies theα-β phase transformation in nickelExpand
